Current through Register Vol. 44, No. 51, December 21, 2022

Pursuant to the provisions of sections 1000.2(e) and 1000.3(d) of this Title, every public transportation system and any person, firm or corporation providing mass transportation services receiving all or a portion of statewide mass transportation operating assistance is required to prepare, follow and publicize a plan for transportation safety. Such plan shall be prepared and filed with the Public Transportation Safety Board (PTSB) in accordance with section 1000.12 of this Title. As therein provided, if any public transportation system or any person, firm or corporation providing mass transportation services fails to file a safety plan or amendment or shall file a safety plan or amendment which the Commissioner, in consultation with the Safety Board, determines to be unsatisfactory, and then fails to file a satisfactory safety plan or amendment within 90 days of the sending of notice of such determination, or fails to follow such plan, the Commissioner is authorized to withhold all state mass transportation operating assistance from such system or person, firm or corporation.

The responsibility to verify that the private operator(s) has adequately responded to any deficiencies regarding service safety identified by the New York State Department of Transportation or the State Public Transportation Safety Board rests with such offices. Notice to the public transportation system will be provided should it be necessary to withhold STOA from an operator(s) of mass transportation services that fails to comply with a PTSB directive.
